victims of saturday's twin blast. >> nepal gets a new prime minister as the country is in the grip of anti constitution process and food shortages. >> we begin with breaking news. the iraqi military said its air force has struck a convoy of the leader of the i islamic state of iraq and the levant. baghdadi's fate is unknown. rumors about his death surfaced earlier this year and in march were reports that he was seriously wounded in an air strike by the u.s.-led coalition against isil. his only public appearance on video has been to deliver a speech in mosul after isil captured the northern iraqi city last year. >> israel's government faces serious questions over use of force against palestinian protestors as a wave of violence spreads across israel and the
occupied territories. since the beginning of october 4, israelis have been killed and 63 injured in attacks by palestinians. the 23 palestinians are dead, and 1,991 injured after action by israeli forces. that's according to the palestinian health ministry. well, witness accounts and videos have led to the accusations by rights groups that some of the deaths could amount to extra judicial killings. >> that's a palestinian teenager shot and killed last week. he was running from a stabbing that happened moments before. then on friday, an israeli palestinian woman was critically wounded after she was shot by israeli forces at a checkpoint in galilee. israeli police say she was waving a knife when they shot her.
real concerns being raised by human rights organizations about the rules of engagement being applied or not by israeli forces. what's been the israeli response? >> well, there's been no formal israel response as yet. we spoke to a police spokesman early on in the course of the day. he said that police officers had to deal with each scene according to the specific nature of it. he said that on each of the occasions in those knifing attacks, it was deemed to the police officer's life was at risk or there was an eminent threat to others within the vicinity and he's confirmed no investigations were being launched into any of those shootings as a consequence of those knifing attacks. that is from the police point of view at this stage. no formal response from the government to the allegations made by human rights organizations, but certainly one of the most damming of those claims was made by the red crescent, which says that in the
past week alone, nearly 300 palestinians have been wounded with live ammunition, wounded or killed. a number have been killed by sharp point ammunition, as well. this is an extraordinary high number and shows that live ammunition is being used very widely in the occupied territory. >> was this something at all that was discussed by the cabinet meeting discussed by netanyahu today? what do we know that has come out of that? >> well, in terms of the statements i should affidavit r. afterwards, no reference made to the accusations made by the human rights groups. instead, it was confirmed that legislation which has been pressed for for a number of weeks, this legislation is important, provides for mandatory prison sentences for anybody convicted of throwing
stones or lighting fireworks and has consequences for the parents of those who throw stones for light fireworks. clearly there were a large number of other issues discussed, but this was the statement that has emerged in the wake of the cabinet meeting, the first one in nearly three weeks. >> ok, mike, thank you for that update from west jerusalem. we want to show you a video that's emerged of an elderly palestinian man facing armed forces in hebron in the west bank. what he was doing is telling them to stop shooting and killing younger palestinians. they threatened to arrest him and told him to leave. take a look at this video. >> get away from here. >> i'm not going away from here. i won't go away. it's not right what you are doing, shame on you for pointing your guns at children. take your soldiers away from here. don't shoot, if one of them dies, you will all die, too. be careful, don't absolute,
don't shoot at children. shame on you, don't shoot, don't raise your hand at me. shame! shame! shame! get away. i will arrest you. you can't. don't shoot there. you have no right to fire your arms. get away, get away. >> i won't go away. i won't go away. don't shoot. don't shoot. why? you want to kill more? we just buried two today. you want to kill more? are you not ashamed of yourself? go to ethiopia. don't shoot. >> so that was a video that has emerged. has witnessed firsthand confrontations here. joining me from ramallah to tell me what you are seeing here today. >> today, there's again, i mean, this has been a flashpoint for
the past few days. just in the past few minutes, that group of youth that you can see behind us had pushed forward on to that road. immediately, the israelis pushed them back to where they are now. they managed actually to seize one of the palestinian youth. we did also see them shoot at some health workers who were trying to reach that area where they are just across the road to pick up what we believe is wounded palestinians. i have to say that this clashes here have been on going, but they're much more fierce clashes at the moment in nables. according to the palestinian health ministry, 45 people so far have been wounded by live ammunition. from what we understand from reporters underground, the intensity of the clashes there is quite unprecedented, actually in this latest crisis.
it had been calm. this his the first day of clashes here. there are clashes to the north and we here of clashes in bethlehem and hebron. >> with all of these clashes going on, what home run the palestinian authority representatives and officials saying right now? >> well, the palestinian authorities have been calling for calm. they do say that peaceful demonstration, they do prefer peaceful demonstrations while continuing negotiations. youth aren't listening to that. they say they will have their voices heard and they will continue doing that. you saw the video of the old man in hebron. there are several other videos
that go viral, each of these, plus the funerals, plus the wounded, all of that add to this charged atmosphere. no matter how much the palestinian authority would call for calm, at the moment, it's very difficult for the message to be heeded by these youth. they come from universities, universities really at the core at this time of the protest. they're not, they don't identify themselves as being part of any political faction, so -- and they are also angry, i would say at the palestinian authority, saying it's too weak, that the palestinians are giving in too much. there is frustration. that is increasing by the day, and so as long as that goes on, i think clashes like the ones behind me and the ones going a bit all over the occupied west bank will continue. >> thank you for that update from ramallah.
the israeli palestinian director of human rights watch, she says the use of lethal force in the occupied west bank is extremely worrying. >> we have very strong concerns about excessive use of force and very strong concerns about the possibility of in discriminate or even deliberate fire on crowds of demonstrators. certainly in the incident that i describe in which our research assistant was shot and injured, there did not seem to be any threat to life. i want to be clear. international standards rewarding the use of lethal force prohibit police and soldiers from using live firearms unless absolutely necessary to protect life, and even then, they must give warning so far as that's possible. that is not what we saw at the demonstration in which our research assistant was shot. it is not seen all over the west bank.
the sheer number combined with other reports raises strong concerns that israeli forces are violating international law. i want to be very clear. israel is the occupying power in the west bank. it has an obligation to protect civilians, even to protect the palestinian civilians who are protesting the occupation. lethal force is to be used only when absolutely necessary and that is not what we are seeing. >> here with the al jazeera news hour, security tightens up after days of fighting between rival camps. >> a massive march in the u.s. capital seeking justice for african-americans killed by police. >> the new york mets try to clinch their series against the los angeles dodgers.
>> first the syrian army is gaining help from the russians. video shows the aftermath of strikes. moscow says 53 isil positions have been destroyed over the past 24 hours. as attacks intensify, rebels say they are struggling to defend their captured territories. we have more. >> they are pushing into opposition territory. the syrian army says its forces have taken ground in the countryside. this his the first major coordinated assault by the syrian army and the russian air force since moscow i understander veined in the conflict. for the syrian government, the threat here is not from isil, but opposition groups. >> rebels are losing, because they are coming under attack from the syrian regime, isil, the russian army, as well as the kurds. the russian airstrikes are weakening the rebels. the opposition is no longer advancing. it is now just trying to hang on to territory especially in
aleppo. >> in aleppo, the opposition has lost ground to isil, who's fighters stormed into the northern countryside and captured villages along with a military base. it was the most significant advance by the armed group in months. the opposition says isil launched the assault while rebel forces were focused on reinforcing their defenses on other fronts. this is the only road leading to opposition controlled districts in aleppo city, the army and its allies are within firing range of the road, cutting it off with besieged rebel-held areas in the city. now, isil is closer than ever to what was once syria's commercial capital. >> syrians in general had people in aleppo in particular fear the word has abandoned them. russia is hitting their rebels and not isil. the so-called friends of the opposition are providing little help. we need immediate help to stop isil's advance and russian strikes. >> on the ground, opposition groups are fighting back.
they are promising that hama will be the gave yard for what they call the invading armies. the government with russian backing is just as determined. it wants to end the presence of the opposition. >> before the campaign, the rebels had the upper hand and were threatening the government on a number of fronts, especially in the province. the campaign has put the rebels on the defensive. they are facing pressure from many fronts and from many enemies. sedona horde, al jazeera, beirut. >> a funeral service has been held for a senior iranian revolutionary guard commander killed in fights in syria. he died on the outskirts of aleppo an thursday. iran denied that its forces are on the ground helping to prop up bashar al assad's government. tehran said it only offers advice to the syrian army. he was a veteran of the
iran-iraq war. >> there are reports of airstrikes against the kurdish in the southeast and northbound iraq. the armed group kurdistan workers party or p.k.k. ordered its members to halt fighting. 95 people were killed in those blasts at a peace rally near the main train station. thousands of people gathered in the turkish capital, for commemoration ceremony. the attack in ankara raised tensions ahead of parliamentary elections. bernard is there to tell us what the mood is like. we understand turkey is in three days of mourning as it investigates to try to understand what really happened during those attacks in ankara. >> this is a country in shock about this. this is the most serious terrorist attack there's been on
turkish soil in this country's history since its founding, since the modern turkish state was founded, 95 killed, 65 people in intensive care. the prime minister said yesterday that there were a couple of different groups. he suspected what could have been behind this, either the kurdistan workers party, the p.k.k. or isil. however, the p.k.k. have trailed that it was going to announce a ceasefire by some day today. it announced that on saturday instead in the wake of those bombings, and now the reuters news agency quotes security sources saying their initial indications suggest that both the farmers were members of isil, so they seem to have been able to identify the remains of those suicide bombers and attach them to people who have been suspected of being members of isil. there have also been a couple of
raids in other turkish cities today in which 28 people have been detained. all of those are suspected members of isil. >> has there been any response from the p.k.k. about those reported military airstrikes carried out on p.k.k. tares in the southeast of turkey and northern iraq? no, there has been no response. they say they targeted weapons storage facilities in northern iraq and southeastern turkey and turkish military said 49p.k.k. fighters were killed. also, there's been a separate incident in azurum near the border with armenia in the northeast of turkey. there, two turkish soldiers have
been killed in fighting with suspected p.k.k. members. we think this might be p.k.k. fighters involved in fighting in the towns rather than p.k.k. fighters that live in the mountains. >> bernard, thank you for that update from istanbul. >> iran says it successfully test fired a guided long-range bliss system missile. it's a new type of surface missile, which can be controlled until its eventual strike. ran hasn't revealed where or when the test took place. this is the first missile test by iran since it reached the historic nuclear deal with world powers in july. >> pro-government forces in yemen are now large i in control east of the capital sanna after the withdrawal of the houthi rebels. local authorities have reopened the only hospital in the regional capital. we have more.
>> these are members of yemen's newly formed government. they've been dough lloyd here in the old city. people welcomed them with chance of support. soldiers will take charge of providing security and restoring safety. >> we have come here to lay the foundation of a national and patriotic army, one run by the people for the yemenese. >> groups that pushed out the rebels say they are also supporting the battalion patrolling the city. >> we are securing areas that have been liberated and very soon will make people able to go back to their work and schools. >> authorities want for people to go back to their normal lives. this is the only hospital in the city which is now open after being shot because of the fighting. it still needs restoration and medical supplies.
al jazeera. >> polling stations in guinea are scheduled to stay open for another five hours as millions vote in a presidential election. the incumbent faces seven challengers, including the opposition leader. we have this report. >> it's election day in guinea. riot police are among the 20,000 law enforcement officers deployed at people head to the polls. >> a lot of people here have not yet received their voter i.d.s to vote. as you can see, the military presence here is in quite a panic. >> i think they distributed the ballots very late, at 8:00 a.m. >> i came to vote. i'm voting for my country. it went well, thank god. we could not do better. there was no travel, thank god. >> fighting between government and opposition supporters has prompted the united nations to call for calm. there are campaign posters on streets of not just the capital,
but also many small mining towns. there have been reports of fighting, riots, and unrest throughout the country. there has also been dancing in the streets with candidates receiving a warm welcome. opposition candidate, who some see as a front runner was among those who wanted the elections postponed. they had said voting cards had not been properly described and precincts were not properly divided. the court rejected the plea and he asked his supporters to participate. >> i call on everyone who has yet to collect their voter says card to do so immediately so they can accomplish their civic duty. >> 72 european voters are part of an international delegation monitoring the vote. they want to ensure there are no voting irregularities. >> at the end of the day, you
have to respect those institutions in managing the business climate to ensure it is an attractive place with all its natural resources. it should be a destination for investment. >> corruption and smuggling of its rich natural resources have kept the country of 12 million from developing its economy and last year's ebola outbreak cost the g.d.p. half a billion dollars. foreign investors have been reluctant to do business in guinea. the challenge will be how to use natural resources, iron ore, diamond and gold to better the lives of millions. >> they. a's parliament elected a new prime minister of the communist party defeated the outgoing prime minister. he'll have to deal with minorities protesting against the new constitution, and a food
and fuel crise. we have more from kathmandu. >> facing an enormous challenge now, we have multiple communist parties and the party he comes from is more center or slightly left of center. the challenges he faces is the southern belt has been agitating for almost 60 days now. they are demanding a more inclusive constitution, more than 45 people have already died, and on top of that, there is the problem of the blockade. nepal depends on goods, imports from india and not much has been moving for the past two weeks after india said that it, too, was not happy with nepal's constitution. of course, the prime minister that has to deal with the aftereffect of the earthquake

the white policeman in the u.s. who fatally shot a black boy last year say the killing was justified. 12-year-old tamir rice was holding a pellet gun in a park when he was shot. the review said the officer exercised a reasonable use of force and had reason to think the boy was a serious threat. the killing of rice and other black men has become part of a national out cry against authorities of people dying in encounters with police. alan fisher has more. >> in the shadow of the u.s. capitol believe, they came, tens of thousands from all over the country, mashing the day 20 years ago when black men gathered, prayed and called for change. >> it's a great experience to see this many people come together for the cause. over the past 20 years a lot has changed. it's time for us to continue doing things like this to make progress in what's going on in
this country today. >> i'm truly amazed and fast forward 20 years from now. >> the 1995 event was considered a water shed moment, the largest gathering since the civil rights movement in the 1960's. organizer louis farakhan organized. this time there was a focus on the black community and police. the black lives matter campaign is a growing voice in the u.s. >> you realize black lives do matter and you can't do what you want anytime you want and just take away our lives. >> from the stage, farakhan demanded greater government action on genuine grievances.

place in the town of mora. it has been attacked several times by boko haram in recent months. >> on the sidelines of the i.m.f. and world bank meeting, zimbabwe is looking for help in getting out of debt. the i.m.f. refuses to loan more money because it still hasn't paid back old loans. >> driving on some of the roads can be frustrating and involve a lot of swerving. just avoid the potholes. >> it's so bad, that's what i think. they really need to do something about it. >> the roads are terrible. just remove what's left of the tar and we'll just use the dust road. >> it's one reason the government is trying to attract international financial
institutions to fund development projects. >> critics say it's too soon to give money to zimbabwe government officials because of allegations of human rights abuses and mismanagement of state resources. >> all these things are reflecting of a country that is not ready. i do not believe the president of this country will ever be ready, so everybody's just a waste of time. >> then there are some in the international community who feel empowerment policies are worth while. >> for as long as they're able to go beyond looking at the black president who is not investing. >> zimbabwe still owes the international monetary fund world bank and the african
development bank billions of dollars. one reason it may not get anymore cash. >> it's almost $10 billion. it would be very difficult to convince to consider zimbabwe for funding. >> leaders seem determined, even promises to eventually implement sound economic and structural policies. most know that reviving the stagnant economy and fixing dilapidated infrastructure will need lots of fortune investment. >> australia is sending a military aircraft to help indonesia fight forest fires that started last month. malaysia and singapore have sent in planes to put out the blaze. indonesia asked for international help after failing to tackle the problem. the smoke has pushed pollution to dangerous levels across parts of indonesia, malaysia, singapore as well as southern thailand. >> california is set to introduce strict rules on the
use of antibiotic in livestock production. there are concerns the over use is contributing to human infections from antibiotic resistance bacteria known at super bugs. our science editor explains. >> intensive farming has long relied on the routine use of antibiotics, which keep animals healthy and make them grow fast. so much so, about 70% of antibiotics sold in the united states are now used on animals. the overuse of the drugs on animals is a problem that can result in so-called super bugs, strains of drug resistant bacteria that can threaten humans. >> the use of antibiotics as a growth promoter is something we discourage countries to take steps to exit gradually, because at the end of the day, the antibiotic residual in the meat, in the seafood that you are
buying will also, you know, give you, over time, the problem. >> we all have e-coli in our gut, but some trains cause diarrhea, kidney failure, even death. traditionally you would have treated that with penicillin, one of the first antibiotics discovered. penicillin causes the cell membranes to rupture, job done. the problem arises when patients don't take the full course of their antibiotics or the antibiotics are of poor quality, giving the chance to develop a resistance to the drug. if this happens, the drugs don't work and the drug resistant strain of bacteria can fast become dominant. >> the new law aims to help prevent the rise of these super bags. from january 1, 2018, antibiotics will only be allowed to given to animals for disease prevention, not to fatten them up. antibiotics will have to be ordered by a licensed vet and
the state, food and agriculture department will monitor the sale and use of the frugs. in the u.s., about 2 million people a year are infected with drug resistant bacteria, about 23,000 die as a result. the problem is global and leading experts say the impact of enter bugs will be felt most in developing countries. >> if we don't turn the tide on this, in 2050, there will be 10 million deaths a year, more than we have dying at the moment of cancer every year, and that that will be predominantly in the developing word, india, china, they will all suffer. >> many say the rules like those planned in california are a necessary first step, but they need to be adopted and enforced more broadly if they are to be an effective global response to this growing health threat. al jazeera, doha. >> the u.s. is set to investigation allegations that
benefits in the u.k. may have led to the deaths of people. they died after being denied government support. lawrence lee reports. >> jill has nothing but fond memories of the place she used to play with their brother, david when they were children. now there's just a plaque in the ground and an oak tree to remember him planted outside the flats where he was found dead. this man served his country in the army, was part of a close knit family, nursed his mother through dementia. he had diabetes, but his government bens fits stopped when he missed an appointment. with electricity cut off, he had no money to keep his insulin cold in the fridge. he was found dead with a pile of c.v.'s next to his body and $5 to his name. >> the autopsy, said there was nothing in his stomach. there was no food in his stomach. >> the system of getting disabled people to work was
introduced by the labor government and extended by the current one. joyce used to do the assessments. she described a points system which forced her to pass people fit for work, that she as a trained nurse thought were not, like the case of a woman who had lost her son and had then been raped on a cruise trip. >> i always try to show the point that the fact that this woman is able to talk, walk all went against her. >> some of the cases emerged from this system are absolutely shocking. mark wood was a talented artist, but he suffered severe mental illnesses which for years doctors said meant he could not hold down a job, but the ors thought otherwise and stopped his money. terrified of leaving his house. he starved to death at home. >> do you think that government policies ended up killing your
brother? >> completely. of course it did. and if i was very cynical i would say it's deliberate. they know in their heart that the marchness of applying the rules don't take into account mental health issues and have been told about it repeatedly. >> he lived here in this pretty little place in the can't sit wednesday of the prime minister, david cameron. the british government said there is no proof of disabled people dying as a direct result of being declared fit for work and taken off benefits. it's argued the people taken offer disability benefits and declared fit for work have died shortly afterwards, all of which have now piqued the interest of human rights workers at the united nations. >> the demand for the united nations to investigate this came from a small group of volunteers working for disabled rights. they argue that if the government doesn't want to find out the impact of its own policies, then maybe the u.n. will. >> we had a response from the
government. work is good for people and we are trying. they don't address the real issue that the system is harming people and i would say sometimes it's killing people. >> separately, jill thompson has launched a petition calling for an independent inquiry into whether government policies have killed the disabled in the name of austerity. she is also busy laying flowers on her brother's grave. lawrence lee, al jazeera. >> still ahead on the news hour, cracking the code, some of the brightest minds get together to find out whose behind one of the most complicated on line puzzles.
>> millions of poor people in india, the daily struggle to survive leaves no time for creative expression, but one teacher in new delhi is changing community mindsets one class at a time. >> every brush stroke is an exercise in perfection. for six years, he's been coming to this art's school. the facilities are basic, to say the least, but the exposure to colors and credittivety has inspired him to pursue a career in art. >> i want to be an art teacher at the school where i study, there are art teachers, but not
at the level where they know everything. >> the inspirational teacher has introduced art to hundred was children and dared them to challenge social norms. for 30 years, she's taught students, many from nearby slums how to draw, paint, and sculpt. he said she is only helping them to see beyond the limitations of ability. >> art is given from god. you don't have to learn it. i don't teach anything, i just nurture whatever is in their hearts, whatever is inside of them. we don't have a syllabus. >> it's been hard work convincing people here to let their children experiment with art. in this community, most people work labor intensive jobs to provide for their families. art is often seen as a frivolous hobby. the school proved that art can
be a springboard to a diverse range of opportunities often unimagined by children who call this area home. >> thanks to a helping hand 14 years ago, he went to college to study art. today, he's a professional artist. from security checks at his local metro station to modern interpretations of mahatma gandhi's dough series to three monkeys, see no evil, speak no evil, hear no evil. >> is the richest artist in the world, so if he can become such a rich artist, why want i? >> students approach him with a sense of reference. her feedback and encouragement provide confidence in otherwise
difficult circumstances. for perewa, this small canvas marks the start of a long and bright journey. >> thank you so much. >> hamilton has won the russian formula one grand prix, staying on track for his third world championship. the teammate who started in pole position had to retire from the race because of technical failure. hamilton cruised to victory by 5.9 seconds ahead. with four races to go, hamilton leads by 66 points and rossberg by 73. >> pedestrian degrees is a won his 50th moto g.p. race. the honda rider nearly quit the sport this season because of an
